Submarine cables tread in Las Toninas to be renewed with arrival of Malbec and extension of Tannat

These developments occur at a time of reformulations in the submarine cables segment in Latin America, after experiencing traffic increases of 25% to 30% on average in recent months, as a reflection of the pandemic.

At the end of June, the Ente Nacional de Comunicaciones (Enacom) authorized Google Infraestructura Argentina S.R.L. and Globenet Cabos Submarinos S.R.L. to install its submarine cables with a mooring point in Las Toninas. In the first case, this is the laying called Tannat, built by Antel from Uruguay, and in the second, Malbec, which Globenet builds together with Facebook. Before year-end, Malbec will be operational, which will add to the installed base on the Argentine coast (there are already Unisur, Bicentenario, SAC/LAN, Atlantis II and SAM-1), while for the project from Google and Antel there is no accurate information on the date of entry into operations. Seaborn's ARBR was also expected in 2020, but the project was postponed to 2025.
